Wagnerstock and Big Name

On April 20th, Wagner College held its annual Wagnerstock and Big Name events. These two events are one of the most anticipated activities Wagner plans for the spring semester. Wagnerstock is basically a day out in the Oval, kind of like an Oval Day, but with activities and many free things. Big Name is the night concert that Wagner plans with an artist that is popular right now. This day is basically dedicated to art and music....

The Road To Songfest

My favorite time of year came and went so fast; we danced, we sang, we joyed, we sweated — Songfest was a blast! All the Greek organizations, along with Nubian Student Union and Fellowship of Christian Athletes, were part of this singing and dancing competition. Each organization had a total of 8 minutes to put on a good performance, and I must say that they all were fantastic. The crowd went wild every time someone danced to a...

Public Speaking

One of the many aspects of being in a liberal arts college is the fact that we are required to take certain classes. These classes are called "general education," and they vary from science to theatre. One of the courses that every student has to take at Wagner College is Public Speaking. It is a requirement because no matter what field you decide to go into, you will always have to speak in front of some group of people. If you are a...

This day was dedicated to all those students who have gotten an acceptance letter from Wagner College, and they were welcomed to spend the day on our campus. Admitted students began their day with a nice brunch at our dining hall, which was accompanied by a welcoming...

Oval Days

It is finally spring time at Wagner and that means one thing... oval days! These days are one of my favorite aspects of having one of the most beautiful campuses in the nation. I really wanted to dedicate a blogpost to these days just because they are a big part of Wagner life. Also, I feel that it is appropriate to talk about them right this moment now that the weather is finally starting to get nicer. The sun is out, the wind...

What Happens In Orlando… Goes on HakwTalk Pt. 2

After our phenomenal first day at Orlando, we continued our vacations by going to Universal Studios, which is right next to Island of Adventure. For this day, my fraternity brother and I decided to wear our letters, and to our surprise a grown man who is also part of Theta Chi recognized us at the hotel! It was a great feeling to talk to a brother from a different state. After this great encounter, we arrived at the park and headed...

What Happens In Orlando… Goes On HawkTalk Pt.1

This week was Spring Break for Wagner College, and two of my friends and I came to Orlando... by bus. Our trip did not begin with the right foot at all. The moment we saw the bus station we knew it would not be a great ride. The station was located in a very sketchy area of Canal Street and the people who were going on the ride with us were not exactly very appealing people. The bus ride was 19 hours long, or so we thought. According...
